The third stage of the Tour de Pologne was a difficult one with four first category climbs and Dylan Teuns showed his strength in the uphill final by crossing the finish line first.

This was the first victory for the Belgian in a WorldTour race. "I feel great," said the rider at the end of the day. "It's just amazing. There isn't much more I can say. It's a great feeling and an incredible moment for me."

This was a good profile for the rider and he received the support of the team to get this victory. "This type of stage is where my strengths lie and I had the whole team behind me and supporting me," he commented. "Just like in Wallonie when I said I wanted to go for the GC, the team gave me their full support today.

"I was a little bit more careful here as after the first two stages I could see that the level was a lot higher here. I knew I was in a good shape coming into the race but you always have to see how the race develops and how your legs are. I also couldn't have done it without my teammates. They did a great job all day and brought me into the position I needed to be in for the final."

After the crash and withdrawal of Ben Hermans during the stage, Teuns is now the sole leader of the team and is motivated to win the entire race. "The main goal for me coming into the race was today's win but I was also given the opportunity to go for the GC and now I am in a good position overall," the rider explained.

"Today's win has certainly given me more confidence but I think we still need to take it day by day. There are still a lot of strong riders up there but I am now in the position to do a good GC so I need to try everything to do my best and to give my best for the team. We will see how far I can go."
